Yes. It is true. I have started Project Oontzoo on March 26, 2007, a very eventful day for me indeed. Now, what is Oontzoo? I am afraid you will have to wait and watch as it evolves to see what it is! Don’t blame me if I like a bit of suspense.
Anyway, here is the list of technologies that I am tentatively using for Oontzoo:
Python – The main programming language.
Django – The framework.
Psyco – The Python optimizer.
PostgreSQL – The database.
Subversion – Version Control System.
TRAC – The bug and feature tracking utility.
Pound – The load balancing tool.
MediaWiki – The documentation utility.
Apache2 – The webserver.
C/C++ – The ancillary programming language(s).
GNU/Linux – I got that right didn’t I senor Stallman?
In my estimation, the whole process (learning, design, coding, testing, deployment) will be completed by the third of July, 2007. I will track the progress through this blog regularly (read on a day-to-day basis).
Oontzoo is more of a learning experience rather than anything else. That is its objective. Anything more will be a bonus.
